About Us


In December of 2011, we changed our name from Twilight Zone Outdoor Cinema Services to Great Lakes Outdoor Cinema with our headquarters in Brighton, Michigan.  We are a full service event production company that specializes in large scale outdoor and indoor media presentations.  We deliver the ultimate outdoor cinema experience anywhere throughout the Midwest/Great Lakes states. With offices in Michigan, Illinois and Minnesota we can provide your community, resort or corporate picnic with an outdoor movie experience anywhere in the Midwest.

Outdoor cinema events are an ideal way to…

  • Inspire community unity
  • Provide evening entertainment for youth
  • Produce excitement for the entire family
  • Add value for annual community events
  • Start a new local tradition
  • Share your love for movies
  • Enjoy the great outdoors
  • Foster relationships within the community

Great Lakes Outdoor Cinema is bringing the outdoor movie experience to the next generation. Most of our events are structured so that the audience is seated on blankets or lawn chairs instead of sitting in cars. This format creates a greater sense of community since you can sit close to friends and neighbors. Great Lakes Outdoor Cinema uses superior outdoor audio systems that rival the quality of indoor theaters. High definition DLP projectors produce sharp video images on inflatable movies screens up to 40 feet wide.

Great Lakes Outdoor Cinema is a turnkey event service. Our technicians handle all the set-up/tear down, media presentation and transport of equipment. Our event planning staff will assist you throughout the scheduling, planning and execution stages of your event. We will provide the advice and experience to make your event a real blockbuster! We will even help you pick out the movies that draw larger crowds.
